The research-based pharmaceutical industry has had a long standing tradition of providing prescription medications free of charge to physicians whose patients might not otherwise have access to necessary medications.

The list below contains the name and telephone numbers of companies that I have found to have such indigent programs in place.

If anyone knows of any other programs in place, let me know and I will include them on the list.
